This project was an exiting refurbishment of the old 17th century historic pub the Easton White Horse. We were asked to complete an emergency lighting design to make sure that it complied with both BS5266 & EN1838 throughout all the public areas and the kitchen on the ground floor as well as the first floor office, stairs and corridor areas.
We tried to use discreet recessed emergency luminaires where possible due to the very low ceilings, but at the same time we had to achieve the required LUX levels. If we had used surface bulkheads, clearance and aesthetics would not have been as pleasing as to what we have achieved. We also had an issue at the fire exits as there was no clearance above the old doors to add an illuminated sign, due to low ceiling heights of the 17th century building. We managed to overcome that issue by positioning the emergency light close enough to achieve 5 LUX on the visual plane and photo luminescent sign. We also supplied recessed down lighters and various other light fittings.
We wish the Chestnut group and team at the Easton White Horse every success in their venture at this charming old pub, where fantastic food, drinks and a warm hospitality are waiting.
